The article focuses on the pending climate control legislation in the U.S. According to reports, pending climate control legislation in the U.S. Congress would impose a cap-and-trade system on manufacturers, the transportation industry and electrical utilities, requiring those sectors to limit, and then significantly reduce, their emissions of carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases. This particular legislation and its underlying principles have come under heavy criticism from the U.S. manufacturing sector.
